Arise and Call Her Blessed: A Daughter’s Memoir

eBook (ePub)
(3 Ratings)
Price: $8.99
More than just a simple chronology of dates and facts, this touching biography about the author’s beloved mother, Kakki, captures both her spirit and her heart and demonstrates how any person is really an extraordinary person. It presents a lively account of a warmly human woman living an ordinary life with its good times and bad times and dealing with whatever life gives her. These remarkable stories span five decades of life shared by mother and daughter. The retelling of the mother/daughter role reversal that occurred after Kakki’s manifestation of Alzheimer’s is handled with grace and dignity. A woman with both a strong moral compass and firm Christian beliefs, Kakki leaves an incredible legacy for her child. A fluid and natural storyteller, C.D. Collins shares what she has learned about the human heart and its resilience in this unique memoir of a well-loved mother, whose example made a strong case for motherhood being the highest calling of all.

    This book is an easy read; beautifully written, with life lessons entwined throughout its pages. The love of a daughter and mother brilliantly displayed through the eyes of her daughter. I recommend this as a Mother’s Day gift for anyone who likes to curl up with a good book. The story, especially poignant here at Mother’s Day.

    I was amazed at how much detail the author remembered about her childhood and even adulthood stories about her and her mother. I laughed and cried. This book made me think back about the times I spent with my Mom and how some of the best memories were just talking to each other in the kitchen over a glass of bourbon. My wife and I have even had some discussions as we drive talking about what we remember about our mothers. I recommend this book as a great catalyst to get readers thinking about the relationships and memories they shared or will share with their Moms.
